    I have had the same problem with 2 different Philips dvp3962 models after about 30 days the picture just turns into like a negative image really strange. I've tried different cables and tv's so they are not the problem. I had bought two at once at wal-mart and have already exchanged one. Now another one has done the same thing..so they are both going back for a refund today. I won't be buying Philips again.It's a shame I really liked these Dvp's.

On play back I have sound but no picture


You just need to clean the video heads. You can get a tape cleaner for this, or you can do it manually.

To do it manually and it's the better option. You will need a can of Servisol Video 40 (from places like Maplin or on the Net). Some cotton buds.
Remove the top cover of the video. Once done, spray all the parts the tape touches with Servisol. Wipe any visible dust and dirt away with the buds.
Concentrate the spray to the big video head. That should look clean when done.
Leave to dry, it won't take long and try a video. If you can see the picture, but it is breaking up or has "sparkles" on the screen. Then clean the head again till it is a clear picture.

Notes: don't clean with a tape in the machine.
If you don't know which parts the tape touches. With the lid off and powered on play a video. And watch where the tape goes.
It will take longer to clean the video if anyone smokes in the room where the video is kept.
I repeat NEVER put a tape into the machine till the deck is dry.

You might have to do this again a few weeks months later.

I have a Westinghouse lcd tv myself about 5 almost 6 years old, I only had problems with the green light not coming on. The best thing to do is to open it up and replace any aging electrolytic capacitors or any bulging ones.

Got new STK392-040 chips and picture is still distorted. Manual convergence still won't alligne all colors.


the 183 is entry into the tech menu===you need to test all the low value resistors around the convergence chips(only 6 or 8) and they will read low and a resistor with NO reading may be your problem.

Also these sets use a pico fuse going to each chip--either right with it or back at the source----know what a pico fuse looks like"

No images but records sound


To start ensure that you removed the cover from the lens.
Also remove battery and put it back in place to reset the camcorder.

If you get only sound on playback, connect the camera to a computer or TV, or play the tape on a different camera. If you get picture in there, then the camcorder is recording, but the video playback does not work because of a faulty LCD display.
If when you play back the movie on a different camera, or using the compute you still get no picture then the camcorder is faulty.
Faults that can cause black screen can be:
Lens problem. Faulty CCD sensor. Faulty controller board.
All this faults are not easy to diagnose and fix, if there is a fault , then it is better to take the camera to a repair shop.

Try disconnecting and reconnecting the cables. Sometimes this is a cable connection issue.

Green picture and distorted


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

Faded colors


If the picture is dark or messed up too bad, the magic focus will not function, are all the primary colors faded? RED GREEN BLUE? You might have a bad CRT, would call a service man to check out.
